01 / History and origins of Dudu Osun.

Dudu Osun is probably one of the most famous natural beauty products of Africa - during the years it exceeded in popularity many other soaps and made its way to the daily routine of millions of people. The Dudu Osun soap was originally invented by the people of the Yoruba tribe in Africa, who are known to live in Nigeria, Togo, and Benin. The word ‘dudu’ stands for ‘black’, while ‘osun’ can be translated into ‘soap’.
The first mass production of the notable soap dates back to 1995 when the first Dudu-Osun production company was established in Nigeria. Following huge success locally and internationally, the company later added many other products to their portfolio, with Dudu-Osun being the main star of the show. Most of the black soaps are still handmade, while each main ingredient is being carefully hand-picked by local men and women, passing the secrets of the recipe from one generation to the other.

02 / The magic of the ingredients.

Dudu Osun is full of loving, rich, and completely natural ingredients which will keep your skin cleansed, nourished, and refreshed throughout the whole day. The most notable ingredients include shea butter (which comes from the African shea tree), aloe vera, lime and lemon juice, a subtle glaze of honey, and last but not least, camwood (also known as African sandalwood). Exactly the amazing properties of the camwood plant are the reason behind the rich blackish colour of the soap.

03 / Benefits and how to use. 

Dudu Osun has been famous among households in Africa for decades, and not only because its smell reminds you of that tropical vacation you had a while ago. This African black soap has been a method not only for maintaining overall body hygiene but also for treating unpleasant body odour, acne-prone skin, extremely dry or damaged skin, and even used as a shampoo for the hair, as it can have calming and pleasing effects on the scalp. Some women in Africa even use the Dudu Osun when taking care of their newborns, since the entirely natural ingredients of the soap are perfectly suitable for the extremely sensitive baby skin!
